Podiatry

I have a couple of different questions about some codes that we have billed for a podiatrist.

1) We billed 97033 to Medicare and they requested documentation to support this code. We sent documentation and it was denied - does not support medical necessity. Is the Iontophoresis billed in a different way, when billed to Medicare? This code seems to be getting paid for all other insurances.

2) Can someone tell me what code to bill for a TENS unit? I thought we were suppose to bill 64550, but we had a rep tell us to bill 97535. I am confused by this.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Trish
